Do You Wanna Watch – Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World?
Next week on What Do You Wanna Watch? we’ll be discussing the Russell Crowe commanding film, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World.
Based on the novels by Patrick O’Brian, directed by Peter Weir and starring Russell Crowe, Paul Bettany and James D’Arcy, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World was released in 2003 much amidst the height of Crowe stardom. He was coming off the Academy Award winning A Beautiful Mind and was headed for something different with a film set during the Napoleonic Wars.
As always we’ll be discussing the movie at the end of the podcast after covering the latest in media news.
‘During the Napoleonic Wars, a brash British captain pushes his ship and crew to their limits in pursuit of a formidable French war vessel around South America.’
